As far as I know, MSDE, or in fact any edition of SQL 2000, will not run on Windows 7, and this has been the case since Windows Vista. More discussion here :

Do you need the machine to be accessible by anyone other than yourself? If it's just for you, then you could install ["Windows XP mode"][1], and build the MSDE installation on that. [1]: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

This is when a product like VMLITE come into play where you can install a Windows XP VM to load up 2000 on.

Get hold of VirtualBox (free virtualisation software), and build a nice friendly Windows 2003 server in it. Then install MSSQL2000 on that. Or install a more up-to-date database engine. After all, SQL 2000 has been around for 15 years and is well beyond extended support. Even SQL 2008 R2 has left mainstream support. https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/lifecycle/search?sort=PN&qid=&alpha=Microsoft%20SQL%20Server%202008%20R2&Filter=FilterNO
